Aston Martin DB4 G.T. Continuation Really Is A Jewel On Wheels

The trend of reviving loved classic pieces of automotive history continues, as Aston Martin started producing a very limited run of DB4 GTs that remain faithful to the design of the original eight lightweights built in 1959.

Only 25 of these beautiful Continuation models will be ever produced by Aston Martin Works, mixing, in Aston’s words, “old world craftsmanship and modern techniques”.

Sadly, and because the cars remain faithful to the original, these new DB4 GTs will be limited to track use only.

Compared to the standard DB4, the GT variant is shorter, lighter and more powerful. The 3.7-liter straight-six engine produces 340hp and is mated to a four-speed manual gearbox. A rear limited-slip differential is also there to help with grip.

The whole bodywork is made by hand-finished aluminum panels that sit on a tubular frame, with Aston Martin saying that the new GTs have better build quality and consistency, benefitting from the advances in technology.

Does this make them as good to drive as the old ones though? Henry Catchpole from Carfection has an exclusive go on the video listed below.

    This is so cool and beautiful.

  • Ray Filetti

    Such a beautiful car. Compare this to the McLaren Senna. I know which one I would rather. Speed isn’t everything.

    • Bash

      Amen to that!

    • Bo Hanan

      I’d take both. The Senna in a darker color though.

  • I can deny that it’s beautiful and apparently Aston Martin Works only sell cars to committed owners. Which mean we would likely see these cars in historic races event.

    I wonder why only Brits who did this kind of “continuation” cars.

  • Wandering_Spirit

    The idea of driving a brand new old classic is surely more thrilling than driving one of those brand new toys for people with a lot of money and a lack of taste.

    This or a Valkyrie? Obviously, this.
